Varnish

hello - have acquired some Wallace silver goblets. They appear to have previously been coated in some varnish to avoid tarnish? Has anyone any experience of this and how best to remove varnish prior to polishing? many thanks in anticipation. yours sian

Re: Varnish

Sian,

This is an excellent product:

Ready Strip by Back to Nature
A non-flammable, biodegradable, non-combustible remover that won't harm silver. Contains no methylene chloride! It's heavy-based so it can be painted on the object without running, then washed off.
